PHOENIX - A new steakhouse opens Saturday, creating delicious food in the historic Camelback Corridor area near 44th Street.
The owners behind Dominick’s Steakhouse in Scottsdale are bringing Steak 44 into the landmark area, featuring upscale food in a charming preserved space.
Cork N’ Cleaver used to call the 8,421-square foot location home, but Steak 44 is recreating the space into an “upscale urban oasis,” according to owners Jeffrey Mastro, Michael Mastro, Dennis Mastro and Scott Troilo.
Steak 44 will offer customers a new bar, glass expo kitchen, dining suites optimized for intimacy and multiple dining rooms. They even have a 3,000-bottle wine vault that guests will walk through right when they enter the building.
Steak 44’s executive chef Geoff Baumberger will create classics with a twist and play with the best ingredients the Valley has to offer, plus tons of Atlantic seafood options like soft-shell crab and an extensive shellfish selection at a raw bar.
The desserts are inventive as well: a grilled banana split, a bag of warm donuts and even a Sonoran Brewing Company Root Beer Float.
The restaurant will be open for dinner service seven days a week from 5 p.m. to midnight at 5101 N. 44th St. The bar will have longer hours – 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.
